  • Description
  • Facilities

Riverview is our main guest lodge and is a lovely old Victorian building in trendy historical Observatory, the student Mecca of Cape Town. During the Victorian era when it was built and named, it did indeed have a view of the Liesbeeck River, but as the suburb developed over the years, we lost the river view. However, we do still have a lovely view of our famous Table Mountain and Devils Peak. We pride ourselves on providing clean, comfortable and affordable accommodation, in a charmingly decorated spacious building, which has a cosy home from home atmosphere. As we specialise in large group bookings and can accommodate up to 120 people, we are ideal for school groups, sports teams, Universities, Technicons, N.G.O.’s, large budget tour groups and school groups. We are on the doorstep of numerous restaurants, shops and pubs, the famous Newlands Rugby and Cricket Stadiums and a great night life in the student heart of Cape Town, while the waterfront, Table Mountain, Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens, our numerous glorious beaches, the City Centre, C.T. International Airport, and Cape Town’s 2010 Soccer World Cup stadium at Green point are literally just minutes away.

Riverview has 35 rooms, comprising a mix of singles, twins and bunkrooms. We have T.V. Lounges (which groups can use for their exclusive use), and dining rooms. We also have several patios and a barbecue/braai terrace under the palms. The communal Bathrooms are separated into male and female only bathrooms, and our bunkrooms are always ‘same sex’ rooms.

Bathroom facilities and mattresses are terrible!!! Did bring this under the managers attention, which failed to attend to the issue. Will definitely not recommend this place to anyone.

Riverview was a good place to stay, did not have any problem with anyone. The staff were also very nice and hard working. Will always recommend Riverview to anyone.The set up reminds me of my school days which brought good memories about my life as a student. Thank you and keep up the good job.

Hi, my stay at Riverview was nice, i didn't experience any problems.

I stayed with my wife for 6 x nights at Riverview lodge. We really enjoyed our stay at Riverview as the with very efficient and professional managers. The staff are very helpful and accomodative of their guests' requests. Upon arrival we were given a room upstairs and because of a possibility of my wife being operated, they were quick to re-locate us to the next available room downstairs, as soon as we alerted them and that was very helpful.
